I am looking for the best way to upgrade my WHM (cpanel) server to v7 and then 8
I have several plugins for stream audio and video installed as well.

I am sure someone will crucify me for not doing this earlier but has to be done in the next 7 days.
I have my VMserver remote about 30 miles away but have been Quarantined for past 10days because of Covid.
I am leery about doing it remotely and not being on site.

No, sorry, there is NO UPGRADE from one CentOS version to another. You need to reinstall the system (or better, set up a parallel one) and migrate your apps and settings to it.

CentOS follows RHEL and has a 10 year lifespan but there is no upgrade from one major version (i.e. 6->7 or 7->8) as it is expected that you will be reinstalling any 10 year old system on newer hardware.
